T20 World Cup: Rain can disturb, clouds of crisis in Indo-Pak superhit match

New Delhi: Rain can become a villain in the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia. The second and last warm-up match between India and New Zealand to be held in Brisbane today was cancelled. Now the Super-12 matches are to start from 22 October. In such a situation, keep umbrellas and Duckworth Lewis sheets handy. Heavy rain is expected in the coming days in East and South-East Australia, due to which the opening match of Super 12 at SCG and India-Pakistan clash in Melbourne may come.

According to the Meteorological Department, there is a chance of 80% rain with 1 to 3 mm in Sydney on Saturday evening. However, at present the hottest day is also being told on Friday. The highest forecast of rain is in the afternoon and evening. Defending champions and hosts Australia face New Zealand on this day. Not only this, there is also a 90% chance of rain between 10 and 25 mm in Melbourne on the next day i.e. on Sunday, the day India and Pakistan will face each other.

There needs to be at least five overs of play for a match to take place and there is no reserve day for any match during the group stage, only knockout matches such as semi-finals and finals can lead to a reserve day. The good thing among all this is that there is no such weather in the whole of Australia. There is better news from West Australia, where England will take on Afghanistan in Perth on Saturday and the weather is expected to be fine there.

India beat hosts Australia by six runs in their first warm-up match while New Zealand suffered a nine-wicket defeat at the hands of South Africa. Meanwhile, South Africa’s second warm-up match against Bangladesh was called off due to rain without a ball being bowled while the Pakistan-Afghanistan match was abandoned due to rain.
